What kind of prediction are you dealing with? Is it regression or classification?

What kind of attributes do you have?

I want to predict the count of purchase based on historical data(day, month, salary, expenditure… and finally purchase behavior) . Historical data consists of both numerical and categorical data.

Can regression be done on both numerical and categorical variables at a time?

I am thinking to use probability to solve this problem.

Yes. Dependent variable can be a factor in regression
